A new version of Oliver, with a festive Twist!

Join young, orphaned Oliver Twist on a wild adventure in this festive adaptation of Charles Dickens’ much-loved novel.

Born in a workhouse. Sold into an apprenticeship. Recruited by Fagin’s band of pickpockets and thieves. We follow Oliver as he sinks into London’s grimy underworld on his search for a home, a family and love.

Following the huge popularity of last year’s A Christmas Carol, writer Deborah McAndrew returns with a show packed with dance and song, including traditional carols, folk tunes and new music. A story of courage in adversity, Oliver Twist is a classic tale that touches us all, with a large dose of Christmas cheer and festive sparkle!

“Christmas is often the time when families come together to go to theatre and it is an honour to create a few magic hours of storytelling that everyone can enjoy.”
